NCMA Park Upper Tributary and Forest Improvement Project: Phase 1

North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Raleigh, NC

This project will improve the head waters of the tributary to House Creek in the NCMA’s Park in an effort to reduce sediment and nutrient run off in water that exits the property. A new trail and signage will provide an enhanced experience in nature.

Counties Impacted:

  • Wake

​Water will be improved on site and downstream. Current stream instability is being repaired to prevent continued bank erosion and accelerating tree loss. Stabilizing this section of stream will improve aesthetics, safety and reduce the amount of sedimentation downstream as it flows into the Neuse River Watershed
